Last year, TÜV SÜD Rail GmbH’s Graz-based Infrastructure department carried out a successful audit at "voestalpine VADEMSAŞ" (VAD, the Voestalpine factory in Çankırı, Turkey) and approved a switching system on-site at the customer’s facility. TÜV SÜD Rail operated as an inspection body according to EN ISO/IEC 17020:2004, accredited by the German accreditation body Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS). Inspection focused on whether the type, design and production of the VAD switching system were in conformity with the relevant standard.
In the kick-off meeting right at the start, the partners were able to clarify important critical issues regarding the documentation and the preparation for on-site approval. VAD thus proved well prepared for the audit, a factor that benefited on-site activities.
Klaus Bosch, CEO of TÜV SÜD Rail GmbH, officially presented the corresponding certificate Z10 14 09 89889 001 to Voestalpine at InnoTrans 2014.
